What I liked

Set design was very impressive and really makes you feel like you’re peeking in on this family falling apart.

Great actors playing well-defined characters.

I liked the music that played in between scenes.

The majority of the humor landed, with the barbs between family members producing some of the biggest laughs.

What I didn't like

Some of the writing left me wondering why they would say it that way or at that time. Similarly, some of the reveals didn’t feel big enough for the way the characters reacted to them. But overall it was very entertaining the whole way through.

My overall impression

Family tensions are high in this very polished ensemble comedy taking place on a well-dressed set that is almost a character itself.
